Our son Ryan was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma in 2004. In 2007, my wife Missy was diagnosed with stage 2 triple negative breast cancer. On July 8th, 2009, Missy lost her battle to this horrible disease. 2 days later, on July 10th, Ryan also lost his. Together forever, they both watch over our family now from the heavens above. Below is our families journey through Ryan's treatments, along with the joy and laughter we tried to instill into our daily lives. Those days helped us all cope with the pain and suffering that comes with cancer and it's deadly treatments. Both Missy and Ryan endured high doses of chemo, radiation and surgeries. Over 150 nights spent in the hospital and many, many more days. More transfusions than I could count. Yet both Missy and Ryan took on each day with a positive attitude and warm smile for all their friends. We miss them terribly. They will always be a shining light in our lives.

Family Camp, Here we come.

This picture is from a few weeks ago. Ryan had decided he wanted to take cupcakes to school for his birthday, but his birthday is in July. No problem, we can celebrate it any time! I was surprised he didn't expect a present. :) I dropped his urine off at the lab in Athens this morning so we won't have any results until next week. He goes back Monday for the second round of immunizations. I really dread it. It will make for a tough beginning to the week. He has 3 soccer games this week so I hope it doesn't make him too sore. We are heading off to family camp this evening. I hope we don't get totally rained out! One thing is for sure, my massage won't get rained out! I am definitely looking forward to that. Hopefully, I will be able to post some pictures Sunday or Monday of the kids having fun at Camp Sunshine. Have a great weekend. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
